My Summer Reads

“Love… Locally Inspired” at the Red Lion [Port Angeles Wedding Photographer]

Last weekend I had the honor of participating in a Port Angeles wedding show hosted by the Red Lion Hotel. I can’t believe how much fun it was! It’s been a little while since the last wedding show in the area, so it felt like all the vendors were especially excited. Even though I’m a […]
